    1. Let's keep calm and get more specific. 2. Are we talking about the seal on the manual shaft that is connected to the shift cable?
    3. If so, the seal is included in every regular kit or can be obtained as single piece. Get a puller/installer as shown in the picture. It helps you removing/installing this seal on most common GM transmissions without pulling the pan.
    4. If this isn't the seal you're talking about, go back to the first point.

    the tranny guy also told me that. Cause when it drains back it gets high enough to where the leak is. I just kills me to have bought a rebuilt tranny to have it leak worse. Its out of warranty.

    Then it's the seal from the picture. Commonly available in kits and as single piece from suppliers. You only need a new/good used shaft if the old one is worn by the seal.

    When i bought my '70, it was supposed to be a rust free, done car. When i got it, there was a trans leak. I have a lift, so replaced the pan gasket and new filter. Still leaking. Turned out the pump bolts were stripped, and it was a slow migrating leak from the front. Fixed that. Bought a Tremec Magnum.
